Welcome to Diamond Creek East Pre-School

When parents walk into our kindergarten room, they will see a room full of children playing. Like most parents, you will probably wonder what your child is learning and why they are playing.

Many people in countries all over the world have studied young children and their play. These studies have shown that young children learn a great deal while they are involved in play activities, and what they learn will be assisted by the various materials and activities provided for them.

Play is a valuable part of the kindergarten program because it gives the children the opportunity to investigate, discover, question, share, create, construct, communicate, problem solve, role play and internalize and explore meaning in their environment.

Distinct interest areas are created inside blocks, home corner, book corner, puzzles, art/craft activities, collage area, table/manipulative toys. Outside, there are areas for the children to climb, dig, swing, run, and play games. Each area has various program goals and objectives in mind, so no matter where the children choose to play, they are learning.

The staff will be encouraging your child to participate in an interesting and varied balance of real life and make believe play situations.

Our Kindergarten aims to promote a meaningful and positive partnership with parents through the exchange of information about your child's experiences and interests.

Families are able to be involved in the process of documenting their child's learning journey through our portfolio system used in the four year old program.

Parents are encouraged to talk to staff about their values and expectations for their child. This collaboration is a fundamental element in the development of a meaningful curriculum for the individual child. Parents also play a valuable role through their involvement in activities such as kinder duty and working bees.  

Coming along to kinder duty is a great way find out about the current program themes and to have an informal chat about your child with Staff.
